Fountaine-Pajot has launched its most luxurious powercat yet, a 67-foot flagship that even has a Jacuzzi on the foredeck. In keeping with the French builder’s reputation for creating comfortable, seaworthy and blue-water boats, the new 67 also has a cruising range of 1,700 nm powered by twin 435-hp straight-shaft Volvo diesels.
Everything about the new Fountaine-Pajot is massive and impressive. The volume comes not only from the overall length but also the more than 32-foot beam that makes the salon seem like a living room in a seaside home and the foredeck and aft cockpit like spas and entertaining areas in a luxury resort. The flybridge, protected by a hardtop overhead, is just one more area to enjoy living the good life.
The light-filled salon has an enormous L-shaped galley with a central island. You also can order the boat with the galley down, if you want more privacy; in that case, there’s a bar area to replace it in the salon. Either way, there’s also a large dinette in the salon and a centered door leading forward to the palatial foredeck.
The Jacuzzi beckons there, as well as a sunken lounging area, plus more lounging basically from side to side. You also can order an optional private entrance to the Jacuzzi area from the master stateroom that takes up most of the starboard hull below.
That stateroom is basically a private apartment with a king-sized bed, a sofa, a large dressing room and what the company calls an Italian-style bathroom with two vanities and a walk-in shower. A smaller stateroom is aft in the starboard hull, and two more staterooms are in the port hull.
Aft, the teak swim platform lowers for access to the water. The cockpit has sunbathing areas, a grill and a dining table. A supersized glass door opens to the cockpit.
Twin 300-hp Volvos and straight-shaft drives are standard, but you can upgrade up to 480-hp Volvos.
